Chief Pristoop Announces Ride-Along Thursdays
Annapolis Police Chief Michael Pristoop announces the beginning of Ride-Along Thursdays at Annapolis Police Department. Ride-Along Thursdays are an opportunity for city residents to ride along with Annapolis Police Officers.
Chief Pristoop said, “This is a great opportunity for the citizens of Annapolis. Participating in ride-alongs strengthens our police-community partnership which helps make our city safer. Citizens who ride-along will have a clearer understanding of the day-to-day operations of the Annapolis Police Department. Our commitment to the community made this the logical next step.”
Annapolis residents can ride-along with a patrol officer for two to four hours during the day or at night every Thursday. Arrangements to ride-along must be made in advance and ride-alongs are limited to a maximum of two people each Thursday. To ride-along you must complete and sign a ride-along agreement and release form. Please contact Captain Cynthia Howard at 410-268-9000 ext. 7242 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to ride-along. More information about ride-alongs and the ride-along agreement and release form can be found at the police department’s website at www.annapolis.gov/police under Ride-Along Information.
